Sunsinger by Robyn Bachar ♥ Book Tour & GIVEAWAY ♥ (Erotic Sci-Fi Romance)

Her desire unites them. Her secret could destroy them all.

The lord.

The sole survivor of the Sunsinger massacre, Lord Degalen Fairren spends his days reading tales of the family he never knew. When a rival house threatens to enslave Cyprena, Galen is forced to pull his nose out of his books and enter into an alliance with House Morningstar, and a dangerous mission to save his world.

The assassin.

Lady Andelynn Harrow isn’t House Morningstar’s eldest or prettiest daughter, but she is the deadliest. After her father’s murder, Andee must defend her new house and mate—the shy, reluctant Galen—but every battle risks revealing her terrible secret.

The slave.

Malcolm gets his first taste of freedom when the Cy’ren recruit him to locate the cure to a deadly virus—and feels the burn of desire for Galen, the lord he can never have, and for Andee, who awakens memories of a long-lost first love.

The danger they face fuels the heat between them, but with Cyprena’s fate hanging in the balance, the race to find the cure could come with devastating costs.

Warning: Contains a blushing, virgin lord, a sexy geek, and an empathic assassin who always brings lube on a mission.
• I need noise in order to write, so I have either the TV on or music playing. I often name minor characters or places after whatever happens to be on while I’m writing. For example, Kitchen Nightmares inspired Ramsay the technician. In Sunsinger I named five characters after members of the Chicago Blackhawks hockey team, including my favorite player Marian Hossa.
• Sunsinger was my 2013 project for National Novel Writing Month. It is my fourth published NaNoWriMo novel. My first NaNo win was in 2006, and later it became my first published novel, my paranormal romance Blood, Smoke and Mirrors.
• Sunsinger is the final book in the Cy’ren Rising Trilogy. The first book, Nightfall, won second place in the Fantasy/Sci-Fi category of the 8th Annual Passionate Plume Contest, and was a finalist in the Science Fiction Romance category of the 2014 EPIC eBook Awards.
• The Cy’ren phase was inspired by the Vulcan “pon farr”, because watching the cool, collected Mr. Spock lose his Vulcan mind in “Amok Time” was one of my favorite moments in classic Star Trek. I’ve always preferred Spock to Kirk, but I will admit that Chris Pine is pretty dreamy as Kirk in the recent Star Trek reboot.
• My favorite character in the Cy’ren Rising trilogy is Malcolm, the absent-minded computer hacker hero of Sunsinger. He is adorable, and I loved writing every moment of him. I knew he had to have his own book from the moment he appeared in the second book, Morningstar.
Cursing, Andee shoved Galen behind cover next to Malcolm and then knelt beside them. She ordered Sharp to lay down covering fire. When the marine shouted for her to go Andee leapt into action and used Sharp’s distraction to her advantage. Andee dropped two guards before they could react and Sharp’s pistol took out a third—good thing the man was a decent shot, because she didn’t want to fall to friendly fire. But the fourth guard was a tougher foe, his energy empty of fear or hesitation. He fired at Galen and Malcolm’s hiding place, and Andee threw herself in harm’s way. The bolt burned a ragged line across her stomach—ugly but not deep—and she swallowed the scream of pain that bubbled up and channeled her adrenaline into a kick to his knee. The guard stumbled as he raised his rifle for a second shot, but before he could fire Galen tackled him to the floor.

Andee lurched forward and cut the guard’s throat. She sheathed her blades then took Galen’s arm and pulled him away, checking him for injuries.

“A’gra, you’re wounded,” he blurted. She flinched and snarled in pain when he touched the burn. Andee staggered, nearly overwhelmed with the force of Galen’s concern for her, and then she caught his hands and steeled her shields.

“It’s all right. Just a graze,” she assured him through gritted teeth.

“Why did you do that? You could have been killed!”

“It’s a privilege to die for my house,” she quoted grimly. Andee stepped back as Malcolm approached them, wide eyed but uninjured. “Are you ready to go?” she asked him.

“Yes.”

“Let’s move out.”

When did you begin writing?
I started my first novel in 8th grade, and I still have the manuscript in a folder in my closet. It’s terrible, but one of my teachers read it and she was very encouraging. It gave me the confidence to keep writing, and to keep learning. I learn something new with each story I write.

What inspired you to write romance?
I love romance. I majored in English literature in college, and I’ve read a bit of everything from Beowulf onward, but what draws me to romance is the guarantee of a great story, compelling characters, and a happily ever after.

What's this about your love of Role Playing Games?
Hello, my name is Robyn, and I am addicted to gaming. I own a lot of dice, and I’ve played a lot of Dungeons and Dragons. My writing doesn’t leave me a lot of time for gaming now, but I try to sneak in a few hours every so often. At the moment, my favorite game is Dragon Age: Origins, though Mass Effect 2 earned a special place in my heart.

What's up with the paranormal obsession?
I've had an interest in the paranormal since I was 16 years old. It started as research into ghosts and hauntings, and bloomed into the study of many paranormal topics. (I'm still convinced that the English building at UIUC is haunted, by the way.) My love of the paranormal is the reason why there is magic in everything I write.
